Abstract:The motivation for this thesis was author’s experience as a traveling artists and questioning how experiences abroad influenced her artistic evolution. Nowadays, in the years of globalization and cross-border collaborations, it has become very common for artists to make international connections in order to seek inspiration, funds, connections, exhibition spaces, platforms on which to show their work, studios, workshops, and to establish an international career. The idea of this thesis is to explore the phenomena of traveling artists through literature and analysis of the author’s personal experience and development as an artist in order to identify whether travel is a good practice that should be advised for emerging (or established) artists in order to evolve in their careers. This thesis, “The Influence of a Change in Surroundings on Artistic Creativity,” questions how traveling influences artists and their creativity. It offers a historically overview of the subject and presents contemporary ways and opportunities for artists to travel and work in international environments. In the second part of this thesis, the author presents poetical videos, the “An Artist Abroad – Video Poetry Series,” which were made during the research and through which the author expresses her feelings and observation of her new surroundings. Very personal and poetic work shows the progress and development in the author’s artistic practice, and it shows how new surroundings influenced her creative and production processes.

Title:Umetnik v tujini : Vpliv menjave okolja na umetniško ustvarjalnost
Abstract:Motivacija za raziskavo teme za magistrsko delo izvira iz avtoričine izkušnje, kot potujoča umetnica, in razmisleka o tem kakšen vpliv so imele izkušnje v tujini na njen umetniški razvoj. Dandanes, v času globalizacije in mednarodnih sodelovanj, postaja vse bolj pogosto, da umetniki delujejo tudi v mednarodnem okolju za iskanje inspiracije, različnih sponzorstev, povezav, razstavnih prostorov, platform za prikazovanje njihovih del, ateljejev, delavnic ter za vzpostavitev mednarodne kariere. Ideja magistrskega dela se osredotoča na raziskovanje fenomena potujočih umetnikov skozi različno literaturo in analizo avtoričine osebne izkušnje ter razvoja njenih umetniških del, da bi našla povezave in rezultate, ki kažejo na to ali je to dobra in priporočljiva praksa za mlade (ali že uveljavljene) umetnike za razvoj njihove kariere. Magistrsko delo “Vpliv menjave okolja na umetniško ustvarjalnost” se ukvarja z vprašanjem kako potovanje, menjava okolja, vpliva na umetnika in njegovo kreativnost, dotakne se zgodovinskih in sodobnih načinov ter priložnosti, ki omogočajo umetnikom, da potujejo in delajo v mednarodnem okolju. V drugem delu magistrskega dela avtorica predstavi zbirko poetičnih videov “Umetnik v tujini – Serija video poezij”, ki so bili ustvarjeni med njenim raziskovanjem in skozi katere avtorica izraža svoja čustva in opazovanja novega okolja v katerega se je začasno preselila. Zelo osebno in poetično delo prikazuje napredek in razvoj v avtoričini umetniški praksi in prikazuje, kako je novo okolje vplivalo na njeno kreativnost in produkcijski proces.
